pretoria to baghdad and finally to benghazi. the mission that drew chris and sean and their colleagues to libya is both noeble and necessary. we and the people of libya honor their memory by carrying it forward. this is not easy. today, many americans are asking, indeed, i asked myself, how could this happen. how could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction. this question reflects just how complicated and, at times, how confounding, the world can be. but we must be clear-eyed even in our grief. this was an attack by a small and savage group. not the people or government libya. everywhere chris and his team went in libya, in a country scarred by war and tyranny, they were hailed as friends and partners. and when the attack came yesterday, libyans stood and fought to defend our post. some were wounded. libyans carried chris' body to the hospital and they helped rescue and lead other americans to safety. and last night, when i spoke to the president of libya, he strongly condemned the violence and pledged every effort to protect our people an

made in connection with tuesday's deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. we're in tripoli this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. officials have arrested suspects and have several more under surveillance across the eastern part of the country. they're not shedding any light as to who these individuals are and what role they may have played in the deadly attack. what we do know is that according to libyan officials, some of the individuals have been taken into custody after footage emerged at the protests which the officials hearsay was essentially the cover that was exploited by militant groups. they are convinced so far that this was not simply an outburst or spontaneous outburst of anger against an anti-islamic film that appeared in the u.s. but rather a coordinated planned attack exploited by a militant group perhaps affiliated with al qaeda in the eastern part of libya. >> all right. he's in tripoli for us with the latest. thank you. it's 7:03 now. here's david. >> savannah, thank you. the violent anti-american demonstrations are not letting up in
